    NOTE: If you have a Live-ID, hotmail account, or MSN account they are all called a Microsoft account now. You already had a 25GB SkyDrive storage space available. You need to access the account as Roderunner specified as opt-in to keep the 25GB otherwise sometime in the near future you will be downgraded to a 7GB storage space that all NEW users get.

    See The next chapter for Skydrive for a detailed discussion of the changes.

    RR thanks for the info.
    I just did the upgrade to 25GB. It was showing only 7GB available. It was very easy to do the FREE upgrade to 25GB.

    Thank you

    Your all very welcome. I now use SkyDrive instead of Network based file sharing.

    Why bother with a trivial 7GB when you can get 50GB free @ http://www.adrive.com/personal_basic
